Chander Naun

Chander Naun Lake

Chander Naun Lake, also known as Chandernahan Lake lies in the Chanshal range of Rohru Tehsil in District Shimla.    Surrounded by snow all around, the lake is the source of the river Pabbar.  The lake is fed by many springs.  Chander Naun lake is a high-altitude lake situated at 4,260 meters above sea level.  

Trek to Chander Naun Lake and the Seven Lakes

The trek to the lake starts from a village called Janglik from where one has to trek to Dera Thatch. From Dera Thatch, the next one has to trek to Lithum. The scenery from this place is breathtaking with beautiful meadows, streams, waterfall, and snow-capped mountains around you. As you trek further the trek gets a bit harder walking on a rocky surface. However, you are amply rewarded with the beautiful vista all around you and several small lakes on the way. There are in fact seven lakes in all including the Chander Naun lake.

One reaches the place after an arduous trek.  Though the trek is difficult, it is worth the effort.  The greenery and scenic beauty all around are simply mesmerizing and out of this world.
